Gripping and fascinating

This is the first book by H G Wells that I have listened to. I was very impressed with the book, Wells gives an excellent explanation of optics that gives a plausible explanation of how a man can become invisible. I feel this is much stronger than many modern works of science fiction.

Gripping story, read well

Great story read very well. The audio version of a 'real page turner'. Quite thought provoking too

A brilliant reading

Edward Hardwicke brings the story alive with a wide selection of voices. Easily the definitive edition of the story.

Not his best.....

Much preferred The Time Machine And War of the Worlds.

This likely had Victorians on the edge of their seats; it isn’t as thrilling or terrifying as the other two famous stories by Wells though.

This presentation is good.
